A group of journalism students from the universities “St. Cyril and Methodius", "Goce Delchev" and "Mother Teresa", participate in the four-week program on digital media production during December 2019, organized by the Macedonian Institute for Media, in cooperation with Albany Associate from London and Mediacentar Sarajevo.

The program consists of one-week workshop delivered by prominent journalists, editors and media experts, as well as tree-week practical work in the media outlets in the country.

The workshop was based on lessons and practical exercises through which the students explored the media scene and contemporary trends in journalism and learned more about the TV journalism.
